RENO, Nev. (AP) — For the first time in its 25-year history, the favorite to win the annual celebrity golf tournament at Lake Tahoe is a golfer.

Annika Sorenstam is listed at 2-1 atop the odds posted Monday at Harrah's/Harveys Lake Tahoe Race & Sports Book.

Defending champ and four-time winner Billy Joe Tolliver is at 9-2, followed by eight-time champ Rick Rhoden at 5-1.

The ex-pitcher Rhoden has played on the senior tour, but it's the first time any longtime golf pro has competed at the American Century Celebrity Championship at Edgewood. The tourney uses a modified Stableford system that puts a premium on birdies and eagles.

Sorenstam will play from the same tees as the guys. It's been 11 years since she played with the men on the PGA Tour at Colonial.
